  • Dental work, Halcion

    I have a patient that wants oral sedation and is nursing a one year old. The Oral Surgeon uses Halcion. I have read the info in your book and wondered what you thought was the safest action to take after having this procedure? Pump and dump for 10.5 hrs to get past the life of the drug? Or do you feel the amount would in the milk would not affect him anyway.

    Halcion

    Dear Jackie,
    It is unlikely that this medication will bother your one year old, however, if you are able to pump and store some milk to use after the procedure this would minimize exposure. Hope this is helpful.
    Sincerely,
    Maria Milla, MD

      Diflucan is determined to be an L2 and does cross into the milk. Baby notably more problems with reflux after receiving diflucan milk. Side effect of diflucan is dyspepsia, is it possible baby's problems due to the diflucan?
